This event is open to everyone, especially farmers and ranchers with disabilities as well as those who support them. Hosted on the SIPI campus, this event is an effort to enhance the relationships between the AgrAbility Project and the 1994 land grant institutions. Presentations are focused on how existing, new, and prospective tribal farmers/ranchers and others with disabilities and other functional limitations can remain or become successful in small scale farming and gardening.

Join us to learn about the USDA AgrAbility project. The attached agenda includes physical rehabilitation issues of farmers and ranchers, microscale farming, adaptive tools and technology, and worksite assessment.

Day 1 offers an introduction to AgrAbility and Assistive Technology.

Day 2 features a Farmer Panel and presentations from multiple NM resource providers.

National AgrAbility Project, sponsored by the USDA, provides assistance to farmers, ranchers, other agricultural workers, and farm family members impacted by disability, illness, or chronic conditions. AgrAbility is funded through a competitive grant process establishing one National Project and multiple State/ Regional Projects (currently serving 21 states). Each state project involves a collaborative partnership between land grant universities and various non-profit disability services organizations. New Mexico AgrAbility Project is in cooperation with National AgrAbility Project, Mandy’s Farm (non-profit), New Mexico Technology Assistance Program, University of New Mexico Occupation Therapy Graduate Program and many other state, tribal, and regional organizations.
